OpenVMS Access to End on April 30, 2013

On April 30, 2013 the Office of Information Technology will end public access to its OpenVMS computing environment. While most users have migrated their computing activities to alternate platforms such as Windows, MacOS, Linux, or Web-based services, some users may still have data, programs, or documents stored on VMS that they may wish to preserve.

Any users who have programs or data stored on OpenVMS (vms.cc.wmich.edu, also known as eeyore.cc.wmich,edu), are urged to begin planning to move their files to alternate platforms.

The Help Desk staff is ready to provide assistance with data transfers, and information technology staff are available to assist in identifying migration alternatives. Call the Help Desk at (269)387-4357, option 1 for more information.
